Deceiving exterior.

I have eaten at the Dove in Lackawanna on three other occasions and would have given it three stars. So I didn't return, as there are so many other better places. My recent trip was certainly an improvement from my other visits, which were more than a year ago. Has it stepped up its game? First... read more

Saturday night, after a movie, we had dinner at The Dove. After we were seated at our table, we were served two fairly large meatballs with red sauce. All entrees include soup (pasta e fagioli) and a mixed green salad with a choice of dressings. A bread basket, which includes garlicky bread sticks and rolls, is also presented. (Bags of... More

Great food, nice bar area and a good place for a couples night out. Had an eggplant dish that was really good. Servers were friendly and attentive. Try this place it was good, I'll be back.

Food is very good and the value increases because of all the great touches like complimentary meatball appetizer (yummy), limoncello to cleanse our palate, sweetheart sugar cookies to finish., all at no extra charge. Red sauce is great! Hubby had Veal Parm. I had the special lobster stuffed Chicken Francese. In summer they do fruit soups - blueberry was good... More

This was our first visit to the Dove. It was for a Communion party & I had expected plain buffet or family style fair. What we got was some interesting menu items & a very enjoyable experience. All meals start out with a nice pasta/bean soup, then salad, and before main entree ..... All received some chilled limoncello - nice... More

The food tasted great! However, we respectfully showed up 5 mins before our reservation and were seated almost immediately. After waiting at least twenty mins for our waitress to come take our order we did not receive ANY food we ordered till 1 hour after our reservation time, when we finally received our salads. We had our toddler age child... More

Three of us had lunch at the Dove on May 27, 2015 at noon. Service left much to be desired because they were quite busy and we saw only one waitress. She did her best. The warm bread and soft butter were very good as was the soup and salad. The main entrees were disappointing for all of us. Two... More

I didn't really know what to expect when I went to the Dove tonight but it was really an exceptional experience. I went with my husband and his parents. I ordered the Veal Parm and I am always hard pressed to find a good Veal Parm. I took a chance and am so glad I did. It was a tender... More

We met acole for dinner here several months ago . Restaurant was half empty even though it was 6:30 pm. Most of the menu is Italian. The wait person was prompt and took our drink orders. Drinks arrived quickly and our dinner orders were taken. Food arrived in average time. We all were happy with the dinners. The menu is... More
